Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani’s new TV series, “Little America,” debuts today. The series “traverses the country and the globe, each installment tracking a different immigrant’s journey to or within the United States.” In an interview with Brandon Yu of The New York Times, Nanjiani shares his sense of optimism: “Maybe it’s a little stupid to be thinking like this right now. But I do feel optimistic in this country, and so the show obviously has that perspective in it, too.”
Here is how Apple TV+ describes the series:
"Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine, `Little America' will go beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they’re more relevant now than ever." (emphasis added).
